My brain is too tired for a witty title...

So, since it has been eversolong since my last post, I have decided to take the bull by the horns and blog it up a bit while I do my best job fighting sleep (I've really become quite good at it). In lieu of a super long blog describing every detail of the past month(s) of my life, I have decided to once again go the "list" route. So, here you go:

1. Sarah, Whitney, Melissa and I have recently taken up cake decorating. If you interpret "cake decorating" as meaning that we paid for a class at Hobby Lobby, went twice, and decided we already knew enough to open our own bakery. Below is a picture of the cakes we decorated for the East Chambers FCA bake sale benefiting Haiti.

And now you all understand why we believe we don't even need classes anymore...

2. Keeping with the tradition of the majority of the other posts on my blog, I will not leave out mention of Twilight. While I know it was a few months ago, the New Moon premier did come and go without mention on my blog. So, albeit late, here are my kudos to New Moon.

Yes, we are all in our mid-late twenties. Yes, we are aware that the movie is about high schoolers. Yes, that is a question mark after "Team Jacob" on Sarah's shirt. Yes, we feel like our obsession is justified by the fact that Robert Pattinson is close to our age and not 17 (or 100something) years old like the incredibly dreamy vampire he plays in the movies. Yes, we will be making shirts for the Eclipse premier this summer.

3. Speaking of obsession, another one of mine is I'm not sure why I find this website so funny, aside from the fact that I always find inappropriate things hilarious, but I find myself checking it every day, without fail, and laughing out loud. It is for this reason that I only allow myself to check it at home so that I may avoid the embarrassment of having random people witness me laughing alone at my computer.

4. My beautiful bundle of furry orange joy is still just as rambunctious and fiery as ever! He recently took a liking to the Jersey Shore when he realized that their Affliction tees would wear nicely with his name emblazoned across his collar in rhinestones. (Yes, his name really is on his collar in rhinestones... as if a cat named Basquiat could wear anything different) Now that he has finally identified with his guido brotheren, I swear I see him fist-pumping every night out of the corner of my eye.... saying something along the lines of "the beat hits you, and then you have to hit it back...".
"I had a late night of fist-pumping, Mom. Time for GTL: Gym Tan Laundry."

5. I had the dubious honor of designing the Gibson Family Christmas Card this year. While my dad has complained every day since about the "extra lines" on his face, I think it turned out pretty good:
On that note, my computer battery is about to die and I don't feel like going all the way downstairs to get the charger. It is my hope that this blog has fed your Leighville hunger for the time being and, as always, I do have good intentions of making my posts more frequent... but my good intentions as far as blogs are concerned obviously hold no weight, so do with that what you will.
